We are surrounded by artistic gestures in a multitude of media. Art forms weave in and out of our everyday experiences. We are conditioned by them, although the processes which form them are often a mystery. How do we understand our perception of these media? How do we comprehend their messages whether overt or subliminal?

This unique show offers an opportunity for visual artists to respond to another art medium of their choice. Propeller throws open its doors to invite everyone to view visual responses to literature, film, video, performance, prayer, music or other form. The challenge was to translate the salient messages received from the medium of choice into a medium of the Visual Arts -- a dedicated image that illuminates and unlocks the perceived meaning of the vehicle of inspiration.

The schedule coincides with the Luminato Festival of Toronto (, this show will be a celebration of art in general and the specific perceptions of visual artists.
